Sharing a Glimpse of my heart

I guess I just couldn't really feel like leaving until I shared a glimpse of my heart...

I was talking to my husband the other day about how so many people just don't know how to be real and be themselves anymore... even me. Its an everyday struggle to try and keep up with how we 'think' other people view us. When in all reality we just need to be ourselves and quit trying to be how you 'think' everyone else wants you to be. Being ourselves isn't easy. Other people may see that we don't believe the same way as them. They may see our faults or the points we are weak in. People from now on... I just want to be me! :-) Who am I you might ask... Well I'm just me! I'm a simple little wife and mama here, who loves God with all her heart, adores her husband and babies, loves learning about health and fitness, and enjoys the quiet country life! I long to encourage other ladies in their walks of life... however ladies I'm walking it along with you! I don't have everything figured out... far from it actually. But God gives us the wisdom to be the women He wants us to be as long as we simply ask for it! So today I want to challenge you ladies... read a chapter in Proverbs everyday and PRAY PRAY PRAY that the Lord will give you the wisdom to be the wife and mama that HE wants you to be! Don't be someone else, be who He wants you to be!

"A wise woman builds her house, But the foolish tears it down with her own hands." Proverbs 14:1

"By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established;" Proverbs 24:3

"A wise man is strong, And a man of knowledge increases power." Proverbs 24:5

Crunchy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Pancakes

I also wanted to share a new favorite recipe that I found last month!

Crunchy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Pancakes
1 cup flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 Tbsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
dash of salt
1/4 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 1/2 cup buttermilk, milk, or water

Preheat pan to medium heat.

In a large bowl whisk together the dry ingredients. Cut in the peanut butter till all mixed up. Then add the vegetable oil and milk/water and mix till smooth.

Cook 1/3 cup of batter in pan with butter.

Makes 6-8 pancakes... basically enough for 2 people.

Book reading list

Who out there loves books??? Can I say 'I do' enough? Books lately have become a big part of my life. I haven't always enjoyed reading. In fact when I was younger you could say I hated reading. But since I've been married and got pregnant with our first baby I have loved to read and learn! I can't say I enjoy fiction all that much yet... I like reading more non-fiction.

My friend at A Restful Place has inspired me to blog about the books I am going to try and read this month (February)! :-) I just bought 4 books that I thought looked good at a new bookstore in town so I am excited to be reading again!

I have currently been reading "Mommy Diagnostics"! I'm looking forward to continue to reading this one and hopefully sharing a review with you on it!

I have also just started reading "for women only". This book is a total eye opener. I think any wife should read this book!

This book I found at a local bookstore and thought I would give it a try! Sounds really good! 

This is another that I found at a local bookstore and decided to buy! :-)

Mommy Diagnostic's is so good I need to read The Naturally Healthy Pregnancy as well! :-)

As you may have been able to tell I have been into health and family lately! ;-) What good books have you read lately? :-)
